Welsh language opportunities

Video of Welsh medium students and lecturers from the Schools of Healthcare Sciences and Medicine at Cardiff University describe the benefits of using their bilingualism in their work.

An ability to speak Welsh can be very useful during your training and when starting a career within healthcare across Wales.

We are committed to helping you develop your Welsh academically and in professional/clinical settings. During your time here you will be able to:

  • work with Welsh-speaking tutors and Welsh language tutors
  • work with Welsh-speaking supervisors during some placements (where possible)
  • work with Welsh-speaking students on group assessments (where possible)
  • sit some exams and written assessments in Welsh.

Whether you are already a Welsh speaker or just keen to learn, we can support the development of your Welsh language skills.

A grant is also available through the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol's scholarship scheme for students who complete a third of their course through the medium of Welsh.


Find out more from Miss Awen Iorwerth, our Welsh medium lecturer.

You can also contact our Welsh language team for details of Welsh and bilingual support available in each programme.
